HOLISTIC: Wildfire monitoring and management system
HOLISTIC aims at development of comprehensive wildfire monitoring and management system at the Adriatic seacoast. GeMMA provided a group of experts for environmental and Earth Observation data processing for the Municipality of Ajdovščina, where the system is being evaluated in operational environment. An advanced GIS has been developed that provides real-time decision support to fire fighters, civil protection, and other first responders. This GIS allows for integration of real-time video-streams from thermal cameras and supporting information acquired by drones. Integrated analytics tools include navigation support for rescue teams as well as information support for evaluation of burned areas. In addition, the system integrates tracking of units for their improved coordination, supported by automatic routing and mapping of obstacles.
